HCPSS Students Lead the Way for New Legislation
October 11th, 2018
Following the work of HCPSS students, legislation was signed on October 10, 2018 to ban coal tar sealants in Howard County. The students began their activism at Centennial Lane Elementary School and continued it on at Burleigh Manor Middle School. The group presented their case to Howard County Councilman Jon Weinstein, who introduced the legislation in September. After passing the County Council, County Executive Allan Kittleman signed it into law.
